Mousse T. (born Mustafa Gündoğdu or Mustafa Gündoğlu on October 2, 1966 in Hagen, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a German DJ and record producer of Turkish descent. He is perhaps best known for his collaboration with Tom Jones, "Sex Bomb", released on the album Reload.

Biography

One of the first producers of house music in Germany, alongside contemporaries Boris Dlugosch, DJ Tonka and Ian Pooley, Mousse T. began his career in 1990 as keyboard player for a small band known as Fun Key B. At the same time, he set up his own recording studio and began DJing in the city of Hannover. Besides working on his own productions, usually with partner Errol Renalls, Mousse T. also wrote and produced tracks for other artists. In 1993, he founded, along with Renalls, Peppermint Jam Records, a label specializing in uplifting house music and melodic acid jazz.

His 1998 production "Horny" featuring Hot 'n' Juicy (and a chorus sung by Inaya Day) on vocals reached the top of the Billboard dance charts in the late 1990s and Top 20 in the UK and Australia. In the same year, he also became the first European to be nominated for a Grammy (for his remix of the Michael Jackson hit Ghost). His first album, Gourmet de Funk, was released in 2001. In 2004, he once again entered the Single Charts with his song "Is It 'Cos I'm Cool?", which is featured on his second album, All Nite Madness, also released in 2004.

In 2006, Placido & Loo released a mash-up called "Horny As A Dandy". The song fused the vocals of "Horny" and the music of "Bohemian Like You" by The Dandy Warhols.
